Though perhaps not as obvious as the nose or eyes, the contours of the jaw line, chin and cheekbones are important factors in the overall symmetry of the face.
A receding chin or irregular jaw line is a common concern among patients seeking a chin or jaw (pre-jowl) implant. This problem can be surgically improved with the use of a synthetic implant specifically designed to correct the defect in question. A similar device can be implanted in the cheeks to give the appearance of high, strong cheekbones. Chin, pre-jowl, and cheek implants can be resized and shaped during surgery according to the individual patient.
